Sweet Sundays logoFree Sunday cinema ticket with £3 of chocLook out for special packs of M&M's, Maltesers & more

Sundays

You can get a 'free' cinema ticket on Sundays at participating cinemas when you buy promotional chocolate pouches before Thu 19 Oct. You can use it at Cineworld, Empire, Showcase and some independent cinemas, but not Odeon and Vue See the full list).

It’ll work if you buy special bags of M&M's, Maltesers, Minstrels, Galaxy Counters and Revels (see the full choice of sweets). You need to buy five small pouches/blocks (100-165g) or two large pouches/blocks (184-300g) to get the 'free' ticket. Make sure they have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them. See image below.

This is a good deal if you're buying the sweets anyway as the cinema ticket normally costs £10ish.

Where can I buy the Sweet Sundays pouches and how do I get them from £3?

You can buy the promotional chocolate pouches at most major supermarkets, but to make the most of this deal, it's best to buy them when they're on offer, or at the lowest price available.

The cheapest we've found is the large Teasers blocks for £1.50 at Sainsbury’s, which would mean a £3 spend on two blocks would get your ticket.

How do I get the 'free' ticket?

1. Find the code at the bottom of each bag/block.

2. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter your codes - large bags/blocks get five points, small bags/blocks get two points. You need 10 points for a free ticket. Look at the back of the pack to see how many points you'll get.

3. You can choose to have your voucher emailed or posted to you, which can take up to two weeks. It should also include instructions on how to book your ticket as it varies by cinema (see the full list of cinemas).

4. The vouchers can be used on any 2D film at participating cinemas, every Sunday until 11.59pm on Sun 12 Nov. Vouchers can be redeemed online by entering an e-code, or at the cinema box office

Sweet Sundays logo'Free' cinema ticket via £4.50 of sweetsLook out for special packs of M&M's, Maltesers & more

Expired

You can get a 'free' cinema ticket on Sundays at participating cinemas (including Cineworld and some independent cinemas, but excluding Odeon and Vue - see the full exclusions), when you buy promotional chocolate pouches before Thu 13 Oct.

The bags include M&M's, Maltesers, Minstrels, Galaxy Counters and Revels (see the full choice of sweets). You need to buy six small pouches (100-165g) or three large pouches (184-300g) to get the 'free' ticket. Make sure they have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them.

This is a good deal if you're buying the sweets anyway and the cinema ticket normally costs £10ish, but it's not worth it for cheaper cinema tickets.

Where can I buy the Sweet Sundays pouches?

You can buy the promotional chocolate pouches at most major supermarkets, but to make the most of this deal, it's best to buy them when they're on offer, or at the lowest price available.

The cheapest we've found the large pouches is £1.50 at Asda (standard price) and on offer for £1.50 at Morrisons until Sun 4 Sep (norm £2.97, next cheapest is £2 at Sainsbury's). The standard price for the smaller pouches is £1 at Asda (£1.50 in most other supermarkets).

So if you can find the larger promotional packs in your local Asda or Morrisons, you could effectively buy your cinema snacks for £4.50 and get your ticket for 'free' - normally £10ish at most cinemas (up to £14ish in London).

How do I get the 'free' ticket?

  1. Make sure you have enough promo packs of sweets (see the picture for what to look out for).
  2. Find the code at the bottom of each bag.
  3. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter your codes - large bags get two points, small bags get one point. You need six points for a free ticket. Look at the back of the pack to see how many points you'll get.
  4. Find your nearest participating cinema (incl Cineworld, Empire, Showcase and Reel Cinemas. See the full list).
  5. Cineworld cinemas will send vouchers by email. All other cinemas will be sent by post, which can take up to two weeks. 
  6. The vouchers can be used on any 2D film at participating cinemas, every Sunday until 11.59pm on Sun 6 Nov. Cineworld vouchers can be redeemed online or in a cinema, all other cinema vouchers can only be redeemed at the cinema box office.

Expired

You can get a 'free' cinema ticket on Sundays at participating cinemas (including Cineworld and some independent cinemas, but excluding Odeon and Vue - see the full list), when you buy promotional chocolate pouches before 14 Oct 2015.

The bags include M&M's, Maltesers, Minstrels, Galaxy Counters and Revels (see the full list). You need to buy four small pouches or two large pouches to get the 'free' ticket. Make sure they have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them.

Where can I buy the Sweet Sundays pouches?

You can buy the promotional chocolate pouches at most major supermarkets, but to make the most of this deal, it's best to buy them when they're on offer, or at the lowest price available. The cheapest we've found the large pouches is £1.80 at Asda (next cheapest is £2.50 at Sainsbury's). The smaller pouches are on offer for £1 (norm £2.09) at Asda until Fri 17 Jul.

So if you can find the promotional packs in your local Asda, you'd effectively be buying your cinema snacks for £3.60-£4 and getting your ticket, which can cost up to £10, for 'free'.

How do I get the 'free' ticket?

  1. Make sure you have enough promo packs of sweets (see the picture on the right for what to look out for).
  2. Find the codes at the bottom of the bags.
  3. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter the codes.
  4. Find your nearest participating cinema (incl Cineworld, Showcase and Reel Cinemas. See the full list).
  5. Cineworld cinemas will send vouchers by email. All other cinemas will be sent by post, which can take up to two weeks. 
  6. The vouchers can be used on 2D films at participating cinemas, every Sunday until 1 Nov 2015.

 

How good is this deal?

If you're able to buy the promotional packs for £4ish you could make a decent saving with this deal, depending on ticket prices at your local cinema. Buying four small pouches would cost you £8ish at full-price, so it's only worth doing if your tickets normally cost more (unless you were planning to buy the chocolate anyway).

More info

Valid on 2D screenings on Sundays only. Max two free cinema tickets per person. Tickets must be used by 1 Nov 2015. 13+ only. Excludes premieres, 3D films, previews and premium seats. Can't be used with any other offer.

Sweet Sundays logo'Free' cinema ticket with £8 worth of sweetsLook out for special packs of Revels, M&Ms, Maltesers & more

Expired

You can get a 'free' cinema ticket valid on Sundays at participating cinemas - which include Cineworld - when you buy four big bags of promotional chocolates before 19 Nov 2014. The share bags include Galaxy Counters, Revels, M&Ms, Maltesers, Minstrels, Twix, Mars Mix, Galaxy Bites and Magic Stars. They must have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them.

The promotional bags are £2 at Tesco, so you're effectively buying your cinema snacks for £8 and getting your ticket, which can cost up to £10, for 'free'. 

Once you have all four promo packs of sweets, follow these steps:

  1. Find the codes inside the bags (they're at the bottom).
  2. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter the codes.
  3. Find your nearest participating cinema (Cineworld, Showcase, Apollo and Movie House).
  4. You'll be sent a voucher via SMS, email or post. Cineworld cinemas are only able to send vouchers by email or text. If you pick a Cineworld, you can book your tickets in advance, but if you choose to go to any of the others, you can only go on the day.
MSE Charlotte says:

As I like to go the extra mile at work, I went in our local Tesco pick up a bag (or four) of chocolates to try this out. Be warned, the bags were mixed in with non-promotional packs - so really keep an eye out.

It's also useful to know you can get two tickets per Sweet Sundays account, so unless you're going to the movies solo it's probably worth picking up eight packs so two of you can go - although after eight bags of sweets, you'd probably feel too sick to enjoy the film.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
